Recipe Wednesday: Red and White Bake Pasta

Happy Wednesday. Here’s an easy and delicious recipe from Laura Powell’s book Real Mom Kitchen. The book describes great detail of each recipe and gives beautiful pictures for many of the dishes so you know what the finish product should look like. Plus, the spiral binding makes it easy to use while cooking. It would be a great addition to any kitchen library.
